Already 11 days have missed the National Education Day which falls on the 2nd of May of each year. What can you think about education in Indonesian?
In Chapter III Operation Principle of Education Article 4 (1) Education was held in a democratic and fair and not discriminatory to uphold human rights, values diversity, and cultural values.
Under the Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia Constitution 1945, Article 31 that:
(1) Every citizen is entitled to instruction.
(2) The Government shall establish and conduct a national education system, regulated by law.
Law of the Republic of Indonesia No. 20 of 2003 on national education system
In Chapter III Operation Principle of Education Article 4 (1) Education was held in a democratic and fair and not discriminatory to uphold human rights, keagaam values, cultural values, and national diversity.
Chapter IV of the Rights and Duties of Citizens Article 5 (1) Every citizen has the same right to obtain a quality education
School is no longer just a place for education of children but has become one of the strategic value to obtain positions within masyrakatat. The pattern of the community who increasingly live in keindividuan want more visible glow in communal life. Become an obligation for parents to find the best of the best schools for their children and the obligation of educators also provide the best education to students as well.
Simply put school first divided into public and private schools, the school is now experiencing tremendous progress and bias in education providers. Considered 'exceptional' because of the curriculum provided is very concentrated and tight so that spur the dynamics of learning for students. Putting English as the language must be known and learned from an early age. Making the subjects of mathematics and English as a basic lesson to achieve high-grade values. The development of technology and science have stimulated schools implement competency-based education.
Curriculum Center, Research and Education Ministry (2002) defines the competency-based curriculum is the plan and arrangements about the competence and learning outcomes to be achieved students, assessment, teaching and learning activities, and empowerment of educational resources in the development of school curriculum. The curriculum is oriented to: (1) outcomes and impacts expected to appear in self-learners through a series of meaningful learning experiences, and (2) diversity that can be realized according to his needs.
By definition it is expected that every school curriculum has its own instruments to achieve the objectives in these terms. The device required is proportional to the achievement of results and impact on students. Through various educational activities held at each school will create each learner achievement gap, especially at each school. Gaps in capabilities and infrastructure. Selected schools with the power of financial capital will be able to provide education and extra time on learners. Even the birth of one class is common acceleration by doing a selection of pupils by academic ability above average. Obviously the device as a good language laboratory and educational books complete a supporting factor. With the availability of these devices means that the basic needs of schools, such as places of education, school buildings and benches in it have been fulfilled. It turned out to the schools of this type, very high level of demand from year to year, though parents must be willing koceknya dug deeper so that their children become students at this school. They knew the risks going in and how much it costs for monthly dues are far more expensive than the schools 'normal'. Even many parents who are willing to occupy the bench if his son is still available seats in the schools 'exceptional' is. It certainly requires a deeper fare.
This pattern will then rise to a new understanding in the course of education. The calculation of profit and loss in materalistik will flourish. Creating a new social group in society who feel more on top of another group.
In a school elsewhere in a remote suburb or will be found many school buildings with its roof leaks, standing water on the floor of the school if the rain comes, the walls of his faded paint, textbooks are dingy, and even students to sit during lessons coincide berlangung make these schools are grouped into schools 'normal' or schools that are not berkurikulum competence or schools are far from worthy of a national pilot school. Reality and objective reality that in this beloved homeland schools 'normal' is more than the schools 'not normal' is.
That each citizen is entitled to get a decent education with equal opportunity with respect diversity and plurality in society. With the implementation of education from an early age with this spirit it is expected that the level of inequality in social life and not further eroded and compartmentalized. No more essential differences in the human mind to attain enlightenment. Not differentiated by educational products that are sold traded in it because science is not something that must be accepted doktrinasi, measured in raw material and apply it in science but rather is an attempt to bring the truth of a search path with the spirit of equality and respect each human. That the educational benefit must touch upon all layers of society in general, not as a predicate for a particular class group social life.
